This eBook will walk you through the basics of building an effective team that meets your company’s needs.

More specifically, it covers how to...

  • Recruit members of a distributed team
  • Ask the most relevant interview questions
  • Integrate remote workers into your team
  • Manage from afar through the best technology
  • Hire inside and outside of the US

Finding the best talent isn’t the only upside to hiring remote workers. Here are a few other reasons employers seek out people from across the geographical spectrum:

Less hassle and overhead. The less employees that physically come into the workplace during the day, the less you’ll have to pay for the space and administrative costs to keep an office running. Hiring a distributed team creates a lean business that cuts unnecessary business costs.

Flexibility for you and your employees. Millennials now make up the nation’s biggest generation in the workforce, and they increasingly value a flexible work schedule. The ability to telecommute is a huge incentive — and it will also free up more time for you to manage the other moving pieces at your company.
